That is really neat! You even took some video from under the glass where the honey/syrup bait was on; showing the tongue, or labial glossae of the bee,.. Cool! :).

Great video - check out how the antennae bracket the tongue, sensing where the syrup is. Whenever an antenna strays outside of the syrup pool, the bee moves its tongue in the opposite direction. Amazing.

What camera was used ?
Canon Power Shot A1100 IS, looking through a microscope set at 20x magnification.

Do you think you could do a mating video
As matings happen outside in the air I could not use the setup I used.
I hope to play with it some more on various things, but mating videos are out of my reach.
